“I march because I am a woman today and I don't want tomorrow's woman to have the same struggles as mine”
Gender and Child rights activists
I am a young woman from Zimbabwe whose area of expertise is Peace and Governance. My experience in local governance exposed me to some of the vulnerabilities and injustices women and girls encounter due to poor service provision and lack of voice in public spaces. I realized that were service provision is poor women suffer since their livelihood is centered around adequate water, health and sanitation facilities. I then shifted from Local governance to Civil Society with the intention of empowering women and girls on the importance of engaging in public forums and teach on reproductive health. I do a lot of my work in line with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 3(Good health and wellbeing), 5(Gender Equality), 10 (Reduced inequalities) and 16 (Peace, justice and strong institutions). I also use poetry and spoken work as a means to raise social awareness on sensitive and burning issues that affect women empowerment and youth development. I have also had experience in Kenya as a Norwegian Agency for Exchange Cooperation (NOREC) participant, were I managed to learn better ways of improving my advocacy work and activism towards Women and Youth empowerment. I believe in teamwork, motivation and being open minded as important characteristics that influence positive change.
